Expanding on one of its most popular ranges, Rodial skincare has now added Cleansing Balm, Night Gel and Day Cream SPF 30 to their age fighting Bee Venom line. Getting me *this much* closer to achieving that Kate Middleton glow, these brand new launches were generously sent my way and they’ve now got me all Depeche Mode. Because, “I just can’t seem to get enough of…”
Blending innovation and luxury to perfection, Rodial notoriously pioneers with impressive discoveries that intrigue, stand out, and most of all, deliver. The loyal following among celebrities, beauty editors, and insiders is proof that the industry takes note when this British newness arrives. Exceeding expectations, the latest revisits Melittin, a peptide present in bee venom to plump up, smooth out, and bring on the glow. P.S. It’s the star ingredient in every Bee Venom formula.
Verging on lotion and gel in texture, Rodial Bee Venom Cleansing Balm opens up luxe with its elegant pump dispenser for easy application. Evoking the scent of a floral honey, the balm glides on dry skin and melts away makeup, oil, and pollutants. Massage it in for a bonus of relaxing aromatherapy as Sweet Almond, Jojoba, and Wheatgerm Oils nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Added Salicylic Acid exfoliates gently and helps unclog pores while Vitamin C brightens your overall tone and prevents photodamage. Upon contact with water, the balm turns into a milky toner that rinses clean and leaves your skin perfectly cleansed and ultra soft. I like to leave it on for 5 minutes before stepping into the shower because there doesn’t yet exist a Bee Venom Mask and I’m resourceful like that. $59 – £50 (100ml)
Heavily invested into transforming our faces overnight, the Rodial Bee Venom Night Gel is fueled by Retinol and Vitamin C to retexturize and redensify the skin while we sleep. Firming and hydrating, this unique treatment includes the Matrixyl 3000 peptide and Soy Isoflavones to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Rare to master, the luxurious consistency is spot on, absorbs flawlessly, and never feels sticky. A single press on the push down lid dispenses enough product to cover your face. Possibly the most aggressive one of the new trio, it delivers remarkable results with continuous use. $110 – £90 (50ml)
Saving the best for last, never did I expect to love the Rodial Bee Venom Day Cream SPF 30 this much. Way more than a basic moisturizer, this impeccable day treatment illuminates, softens, and protects so well that I am tempted to also use it at night. Somewhere between dewy and matte, the glow inducing finish and instant firmness are striking. Whipped, creamy, and lightweight, it is packed with Shea Butter, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, and the brand’s proprietary blend Juvinity™, which stimulates collagen production. Top that off with much needed SPF 30, make it sink in without a trace, and I just might be finished looking. $155 – £130 (50ml)
A fan of the Rodial Dragon’s Blood and Super Acids collections, the Bee Venom launches elevated my skincare ritual to new heights of luxury. Truly high-performance, these products officially gained must-have status for this mid-30’s complexion. Treat yourself to anything from this Rodial newness but if you can only pick one, go with the Day Cream – it’s genius.
